Denon PMA 520 fuse blown

Amplifier has fuse blown (proberbly caused by playing music to loud at aux, from mp3-player). I see no damaged transistors or elco, but when replacing fuse, it will blow up right away.
What could be the Problem, or what components should I replace more?

Check that you are replacing the fuse with the correct type first. Fuses marked with a T following the rating are "slo blo" fuses and if a fast blow is used instead, it will fail again at turn on. Otherwise, the amp will have a fault occurring, probably in the output stages. You should refer this type of fault to a repair guy that knows HiFi. as this sort of repair needs an experienced touch.

I have a Denon AVR1603, recently I plugged computer in AUX connections at rear (not loud) and it kept tripping out. Eventually it tripped and now the the on/standby light fashes but nothing else happens....

The LED flash indicates that unit goes into protection. Check the power transistors, the 0.22 ohm or 0.47 resistors in the output of the transistors.

How can I connect a subwoofer to this device (denon pma-520)

The only safe way to do this us to connect the sub to one of the other speaker outputs using a "speaker selector" switch. For example, you would go out of the receivers left speaker output, into the selector switch then out of the selector switch into the sub and the left speaker. There really is no other way.

Hi, i have a Denon PMA 735 R amplifier which shuts down when volume increases suddenly.

Sounds like you have output transistor problems. Does it have a red protection light that comes on when it shuts down? If it does it will need serviced.

Playing too loud music has blown my amp

maybe because your amp is overload, try to load 8 ohms single speaker per channel, then try to playing loud, if blown your amp again, the power transistors bias maybe excess to 0.6V ' if transistorized, if IC power amp, check cooling fan.

I have a Denon PMA 500V amplifier. all of the output fuses were blown so I replaced them but the unit still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Did you checked balanced impedance?load speaker impedance vs PA output?or PA might over driven,causing a trouble on the pre-amp to power amp circuits and components damage,
need to recheck related components on the pre-driver up to main output section,

Note: That,blowing of fuses with the same rating is an indication of trouble/shorted in a circuits that driven on it,

Thanks and good luck

Denon avr 2105 died (3 times) dead AVR2105 faulty avr-2105

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.

It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.

I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.

I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).

I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.

Just waiting for them to arrive.

An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.

Hope thats of use!

Denon avr 5800

I can help you solve this problem. However you must describe to me which fuse you have replaced. Is it the fuse on the power line or is it a fuse in the speaker line (which I highly doubt). usually this type of amplifier uses two technologies. One is transistors the second is integrated chips. This is in regard to the output stages. I assumed you speaker cables shorted each other while the volume was set at a high level with music playing. Anyway if you are willing I am able to help.
